HP expands Converged Storage portfolio

11 Jun 2013 Las Vegas - HP has expanded the company's Converged Storage portfolio with a solid-state optimized all-flash HP 3PAR StoreServ system that delivers performance and low latency without compromising enterprise resiliency or adding data-centre complexity. HP also has extended its six-year lead in software-defined storage with a new HP StoreOnce Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA) that cuts the cost of small site back-up by up to 65 percent.

"It's impossible for organisations to deal with unpredictable workloads cost-effectively if they're managing disparate storage silos", stated David Scott, senior vice president and general manager, Storage Division, HP. "With the new 3PAR StoreServ and StoreOnce innovations, customers get best-in-class, purpose-built solutions to address critical new requirements while retaining the simplicity that comes from an approach that can manage and serve a variety of needs without creating new storage silos."

The HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 Storage system delivers more than 550,000 input/output operations per second with less than 0.7 millisecond response time. Flash-specific caching algorithms dynamically adjust read/write granularity to reduce latency and speed transactions. In addition, HP 3PAR Priority Optimization software assures performance for specific workloads to improve overall productivity.

To deliver a rapid return on investment, the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 Storage system has hardware-accelerated data compaction that reduces capacity needs by up to 50 percent without degrading performance. Systemwide striping, which automatically writes data across all resources, increases throughput, load balances the system and extends media life by eliminating hot spots. Unlike offerings from start-up companies, the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 assures business continuity with persistent technologies that provide constant application access in the event of local hardware issues or a site disaster.

HP is the only vendor to offer a single product architecture that spans midrange-priced platforms, all-flash performance-optimized platforms and enterprise platforms with multipetabyte scale. Competitors with legacy portfolios are unable to make the leap from traditional storage to flash optimized systems without starting from scratch or introducing separate storage silos. HP 3PAR StoreServ's simplification provides investment protection, reduces cost and speeds deployment - all of which is only possible because of the modern architecture of the 3PAR StoreServ system. Leveraging the same core architecture allows all systems to share common data services, such as HP 3PAR Peer Motion storage federation software, to move live data nondisruptively to other systems and sites.

New features added to HP 3PAR StoreServ strengthen enterprise security with advanced data encryption to assist health care, finance and government customers to meet their compliance requirements.

Unlike competitors that require the separate expense of a dedicated appliance, HP 3PAR Peer Persistence is an active-active stretch cluster that provides transparent data center failover to eliminate work flow disruptions.

HP also announced a new HP StoreFabric 16-gigabit (Gb) SAN infrastructure that eliminates bandwidth bottlenecks to maximize the performance of flash-based systems.

HP StoreOnce VSA deploys as a virtual machine on existing industry-standard servers, eliminating the need for customers to purchase dedicated hardware. It enables backup-as-a-service offerings for hosting providers and lowers costs for enterprise remote office protection. In addition, HP StoreOnce VSA reduces physical hardware requirements by up to 50 percent and energy costs by up to 70 percent.

HP already is shipping the broadest portfolio of software-defined servers, storage and networks - all the key components for a software-defined data centre. The new HP StoreOnce VSA joins software-defined networking, server and storage as part of the HP Converged Infrastructure portfolio.

Unlike the fragmented complexity of competitive solutions, only HP StoreOnce meets enterprise disk back-up needs with a single storage architecture. It can be deployed across application and back-up servers, as well as on physical and virtual storage appliances. This enables customers to transfer deduplicated data between any HP StoreOnce system without adding the bandwidth and management overhead of disparate systems.

The HP StoreEver MSL6480 Tape Library has enterprise-class features for long-term data protection at a midrange price. It starts small and expands easily to provide industry-leading performance, scale and density - up to 60.4 TB/hour and 3.5 PB - in a single library.

The HP Converged Storage portfolio is further integrated with the new HP Data Protector 8 back-up and recovery software. Customers can now protect environments with up to 1 trillion unique filenames, more than 100 times that of competitive backup applications.

Pricing and availability is as follows:

  • HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 Storage systems are available now starting at $99,000.
  • HP 3PAR Priority Optimization Software will be available this month.
  • The HP StoreOnce VSA will be available on July 22 at $3,500 for 10 TB of capacity.
  • The HP StoreEver MSL6480 Tape Library is available now at an entry price of $30,000.
  • HP Data Protector 8 is available now for a starting price of $1,238.
All offerings are available worldwide from HP and authorized channel partners.
